As an Australian we don’t really have a concept of “city limits” in the first place, so when I visited Los Angeles and saw its quirky shape on a map, with all these enclaves cut out of it and that long corridor southwards out to the port, it certainly sparked a lot of curiosity. This is a neat little article explaining the history of how Los Angeles acquired that corridor to the south and its port.
